Grade 2 listed 18 Century unique double fronted town house made from Bath sandstone in the centre of a small provisional town. Carefully restored and loved by same family for past 17 years.
With extensive walled quite secluded garden plus inner courtyard
Hopefully we have managed to achieve the right blend of modern amenities for 21 century living whilst honouring the feel and enjoying the sheer pleasure of a lovely old rambling house full of it's own character.
It boasts at its heart a large dining kitchen with handmade oak units and Mercury range cooker for serious cooks!
4 large full sized double bedrooms on 2 floors (2 on suite)
Lots and lots of orginal features including beams, oak floors and different fireplaces.(from different centuries) We hope our 3 cats only add to the feeling of being home when we are away. We also have an office base with a PC, wireless network, printer and broadband for those like us who need or want connects when away.
We now also boast an old canal boat some berthed some 20 minutes away on the Kennet and Avon canal that is might be possible we could include this for short trips as part of the transport swaps
